§738. Statewide referendum ballots

Except as otherwise provided in this section, the method of conducting a referendum recount is governed by section 737-A. [1995, c. 506, §1 (NEW); 1995, c. 506, §3 (AFF).]

On petition signed by 100 or more affected voters, a recount may be held on any referendum question by applying to the Secretary of State within the deadline provided in section 737-A. A deposit is required if the percentage difference between the yes and no votes falls within the requirements of section 737-A, subsection 1. Appeal of challenged or disputed ballots is to the Supreme Judicial Court. [1993, c. 473, §32 (AMD); 1993, c. 473, §46 (AFF).]

If a ballot contains state and local candidates or questions, the Secretary of State shall determine which requests for recount must be honored first when more than one request is presented. [1993, c. 473, §32 (AMD); 1993, c. 473, §46 (AFF).]
